555 North Third Street, Burbank, 91502
a Concert Reading of the new musical by David Hollingsworth and David Orris INVISIBLE is a John-Hughes-esque musical theatre adaptation of the HG Wells classic The Invisible Man with a totally original pop/rock score that takes great joy in paying homage to popular music and popular cultural tropes of the era. The show ultimately endeavors to physically and figuratively bring the audience into their own hallowed high school hallways via the heightened and dangerous halls of Springborough High School. Invisible lives in the fairly self-concerned and narcissistic year of 1988, because at its core, it is a show about what it means to cut away all of the cultural and social melodrama and truly see another human being.

(THROUGH JUNE 26) THE MADWOMAN IN THE VOLVO
Written by and Starring NPR Personality Sandra Tsing Loh
June 2- June 26 On The Playhouse Mainstage
In the throes of her own mid-life change, Loh wrote an essay for the Atlantic Monthly, which later became the basis for her memoir, The Madwoman in the Volvo: My Year of Raging Hormones. She identified herself as someone who is from the “Triple M Generation—menopausal, middle-aged and a mother.” The New York Times selected Madwoman as one of the paper’s 100 Notable Books of 2014. Booklist called it “hilarious, comforting and enlightening.”
The memoir’s three-character stage adaptation is a bumper-car ride through mid-life madness, all sparked by an unlikely trip to Burning Man.
